Letters to Nolan: 6/18/13


How has a month already gone by since you were born?  These past four weeks have been very special and I am so glad that you are finally here!  I know that I was initially a little worried about how life would be when you got here, but our family now feels more "whole" with you here and I am enjoying every minute of it.  
You are growing like a champ and have already "graduated" out of newborn sized clothes and diapers and are wearing 0-3 month clothes and size one diapers.  To be honest, I think you will be into the next size up by next month!  When we went to your two week check up appointment, you had already gained almost two pounds.  We are going to the pediatrician this week for your one month appointment and I am very anxious to see how much weight you have gained! 
One crappy thing that you've got going on is "silent reflux."  You require a lot of burping after each feeding and are sometimes cranky because of the reflux.  The pediatrician has prescribed you some medicine that is helping a little bit.  The medicine is terrible tasting and you really hate it.  

Here's what you've been up to this month
05/18/13: Birthday! 12:14pm, 7lbs 5oz, 18.5" long
05/20/13: First time in a car, first tummy time, first time through a drive thru (Arby's)

06/04/13: Two week appointment- 8lbs 14oz, grew out of newborn diapers, started really trying to hold your head up, umbilical cord fell off, first time to El Gran Charro
